Is Bieksa making a case for captaincy?

87 posts in this topic

He could be a good Captain I think but Henrik is Captain and by the time he is done someone else may emerge. I don't like the idea of having to resign Bieksa after his next contract is up just because he is the captain.

Lets not forget what he said about money on the radio. "How much money does someone really need? Come on..." about Ehrhoff lol

Bieksa is my favourite Canuck

I love Bieksa, but I hope that we've got good enough young, leaders when the Sedins retire, that we don't have to make anyone from the 2011 team captain.

Kevin Bieksa over Henrik Sedin? Is that a joke?

If he's captain, it'd only be if both Sedins were leaving before him for whatever reason. But I can get behind a Juice for Captain campaign if that ever happens. On a team criticized for lack of toughness and pack mentality, Bieksa's an absolute warrior who'll do anything for his teammates.

Kesler was my next-in-line but he'll have to cut the antics and get back to his heart-and-soul game to get my vote back.

I think that the role of captain should be left for someone who is less of the rah-rah type, who instead leads by letting his play do the talking. Dan Hamhuis gets my vote.

Bieksa would be a great captain. I'd be very supportive of his ascendancy to that role if it was relinquished by Hank.

He's respected by the players in the locker-room, the coaching staff and management, and the more intelligent of our fan-base. He's a natural leader out on the ice and has had enough experience as an alternate. He's a fixture in Vancouver whose spent his entire career here and most likely will retire as a Canuck. He's an established leader on defence. He doesn't yap unnecessarily. He stands up for his teammates and himself. He doesn't recklessly fight. He's been an effective point producing player as well, which shows that he gets the job done on the ice. He a media darling to say the least. He doesn't seem to lose his cool even in high pressure situations on and off the ice. He seems to naturally want to help younger players. Solid role model for the kiddies. Good head on his shoulders and very intelligent.

I could go on, but these are the main reasons that if the captaincy were ever vacant, then Bieksa would fill the role nicely.

He could be, or he could just be being a nice guy. He doesn't have to have political aspirations to help out in the community and be a good interview.

Thank y ou Sharp for reiterating what I was saying. I also understand the aspiration of a young pla yer becoming captain, bt I think in the interum of Hank retiring, and the emergence of a true leader from the prospect pool, Kevin is the most obvious choice, I doubt he would say no to a 2 or 3 year leadership role. He loves this city, and its fans.

We already have one of the best captains in the NHL and Bieksa doesnt need a letter C on his jersey to be exactly what he is which is a born leader amazing player, great teamate and one of the best overall defenseman to ever put on the nucks jersey.

Bieksa over Kesler any day of the week. You don't want a guy with such ridiculous diving antics being your captain, because you dont want your young players thinking its ok. Bieksa seems to be held in high regard inside the dressing room, he is a team first guy, and just a general beauty all around. That being said, if something crazy happened, and we lost Henrik to injury or something, Daniel Sedin is my next choice for captain, with Bieksa sitting in 3rd. Malhotra would be right up there if not for his decline following the injury.

My rankings:

1.Henrik Sedin

2.Daniel Sedin

3.Kevin Bieksa

4.Alex Burrows

5.Dan Hamhuis
